An inmate who escaped from custody while at a hospital in Bryan is back in custody, according to Brazos County Sheriff’s Deputy David Wilcox.

Brazos County Crime Stoppers said around 8:45 p.m. on Monday, 19-year-old Cody Rowley was on the second floor of a hospital when he escaped through a window.

"Due to construction, scaffoldings were placed next to unsecured windows around the hospital, and the Deputy was unaware of the windows being unsecured," said Crime Stoppers.

Following his escape the Brazos County Sheriff’s Office began searching for Rowley, calling in canines, drones, and helicopters to assist.

"Cody Rowley was being held at the Brazos County Detention Center for misdemeanor crimes, and at this time we have no reason to believe the public is in danger," said the agency.
